Overseas
Directed by Sung-A Yoon
In the Philippines, women get deployed abroad to work as domestic workers or nannies. In order to do so, they frequently leave their own children behind, before throwing themselves into the unknown. Overseas brings to light the question of modern servitude in our globalized world, while emphasizing these women's determination, sisterhood, and the strategies they find to face the ordeals that wait them in the near future.

Directed by Iryna Tsilyk
To cope with the daily trauma of living in the front-line war zone of Donbas, Ukraine, Anna and her children make a film together about their life and surreal surroundings.
